It’s not often that you receive a message that is in a language you cannot understand. But when that does happen, you do not have anything to worry about. From now onwards, you can translate any message from one language to another language that you can understand using a new Gmail feature: Message Translation. And all you have to do to enable that feature is to go to Google Labs under the Gmail settings to enable it. Of course, you can choose between many language – about 41 to be exact. And once done, Google will translate the message automatically for you when you receive an emil in foreign language. Of course it is not an universal translator but should be a decent tool to decipher any messages in any languages you would ever receive.
Google has introduced a small but significant feature to its nifty email service, Gmail called “Suggest more recipients” which might proved useful to some Gmail users. Basically, Gmail now suggest to you some email contacts that you might want to include in your recipient list based on which contact you are sending your email to.

Here is what the Gmail blog has to say about this:
Once you’ve enabled it from the Labs tab under Settings, you’ll see suggested recipients while composing messages. Gmail will suggest people you might want to include based on the groups of people you email most often. So if you always email your mom, dad, and sister together, and you start composing a message to your mom and dad, Gmail will suggest adding your sister. Enter at least two recipients and any suggestions will show up like this:
This might seems a nifty feature and a quick shortcut for those who often send group-based emails and do not want to miss out on anybody especially if it is an important email. If you found this feature extremely useful, comment and let us know. We will be keeping tabs on more Gmail news so be sure to update here.
Gmail has just launched a new great feature that might prove useful to many Gmail users. Say hello to Undo Send, a new feature that lets you undo and stop sending a message that you were intending to send- all in 5 minutes. This might prove very useful for people who have spotted an obvious typo, forgot to attach a file or sent the email to the wrong person.
To start using this new feature, go to Labs and scroll down to find Undo Send and enable it. Now that you enable it, whenever you want to undo a sent message, just click the “Undo” button and you will be back in time- to when you were still writing that email. Seems like Google just keeps pumping new features into Gmail. We will be keeping tabs on more Gmail news. Let us know how this nifty 5 second feature helped saved your day!! 😀
